commissioner johnç yates was head of counter- terrrism. >> the threats we face in the modern world are such that i would never forgive myself if i'm unable to give total commitment to the task of protecting london and the country during this period. i simply cannot let this situation continue. >> reporter: the police authority committee that decides whether police conduct should be investigated met this morning. they were highly critical of john yates' decisions two yearsç ago when allegations of hacking at the "news of the world" resurfaced. at the time, john yates decided there was nothing new to investigate, something he himself recently admitted in an interview had been a pretty crap decision. the committee decided he should be fully investigated, that meant he'd be suspended and john yates decided to resign. >> i have acted with complete integrity and my conscience is clear. i look forward to the future judge-led inquiry where my role will be examined in a proper and calmerçç environme. yates >> reporter: john yates had also been under attack for the met's decision to hir
was taking place. i knew that it had closed. i knew that mr. yates had conducted that work in july. and i know that in january this year the investigation reopened. >> when you knew what happened on the ninth of july and the eight weeks that led to the issue of the contract, and you knew that mr. yates was conducting that review, and you knew that mr. yates was a personal friend of mr. wallis -- >> yes. >> but you still relied on mr. yates to give you the all clear to employ mr. wallis. >> yeah, i accept the integrity of mr. yates. a senior officer of the organization spent what about your integrity of someone who needs to show due diligence when you signed off his contact? >> i was satisfied that device by mr. yates was suffice. >> thank you. >> on the question, there were three people tendered, mr. wallis' company was by far the cheapest. the specification that was advertised available to the committee so that you can see what was being judged -- >> yes, indeed. a contract of that size could be less by october 3 quotes, central supplies within the metropolitan police. it wasn't advertis
issue about my chief of staff's email is that since reading it, paul stevenson, john yates, the cabinet secretary and the head of the home affairs select committee have all said that was the right judgment and yates specifically says the offer was quite rightly rejected. >> this house, the media and the whole country have been rightly focused on this issue. but is the prime minister aware that aid agencies are reporting that a consequence of that focus has been a lack of public awareness of a humanitarian crisis in somalia and as a consequence, lower donations to relief funds? did the prime minister assure me and the house that he will spend his time looking at those issues as well as this one? >> the prime minister responds. the matter to which the honorable lady is referred is extremely serious but whatever her strength of feeling about it, this cannot mutate into a general exchange about other matters and i know the prime minister won't want it to do so. the prime minister? >> well, i thought it was ingenuous to get that point in orbit. i think the honorable lady is making a very imp
: ever since that scandal exploded john yates, head of scotland yard's anti- terrorism unit has been a marked man. he decided in 2009 not to reopen a police investigation into illegal phone hacking at the "news of the world" even though for four years several large bags of evidence had been sitting, ignored, in a police lockup. inside, the names of four thousand people who it turned out may have had their phone tapped. today yates quit, but not quietly. >> i have acted with complete integrity, and my conscience is clear. >> reporter: but at this point, that's not enough. public confidence has been so damaged that even a hint of coverup or collusion is a career-ender. that's what cost yates' boss his job on sunday. sir paul stephenson wasn't personally suspected of wrongdoing but on his watch of chief a former "news of the world" editor, neil wallis, was hired as a p.r. consultant to the police force. last week, wallis was arrested in connection with phone hacking. >> i have heard suggestions that we must have suspected the alleged involvement of mr. wallis' phone hacking. let me say
-- as a result of that i ask the commission to join -- john yates to establish the facts of that case and looking to that detail and i would anticipate making a statement today. if he asks you to look at the facts and details. >> yes. >> carrying on points for three years, that you signed 8,000 to make a decision. can i ask why it took three years before you decided to put it on a database? >> that is wrong. in july 20th, 2009, this documentation supported that issue, that i asked for clear instructions of what i wanted to happen with that material. that was the level of concern that people were riding in and concerned about -- i couldn't tell them. 11 days -- i think it is july 20, 2009, to put that matter on a surgical system which would control that information. >> i am saying the telegraph is incorrect. >> i need to make sure -- [talking over each other] >> i will come back to you. >> the next police officer -- they you find it surprising people have a criminal offense and don't necessarily want to cooperate with the police. >> i don't. i will get back into what that is all about. it is very
with neil wallis? do you believe that the position of assistant commissioner john yates is tenable? and finally, with so much that is going on in the united kingdom at the moment, was it really wise to come to africa on this trip? and mr. president, can i ask you about libya? david cameron's made it very clear that colonel gaddafi must go, must go now, he cannot be part of any political solution. do you agree with him? >> you've asked lots of questions. let me try and answer all of them. first of all, i think it is right for britain to be engaged with south africa and to be engaged with africa as a whole. there is a huge opportunity for trade, for growth, for jobs, including jobs at home in the u.k., and i think it is right for the british prime minister to be out there with british businesses, trying to drum up export support and growth that would be good for both our countries. i'd like to thank sir paul stephenson for the great work he has done in policing over many, many years in the metropolitan police force and elsewhere. and as i said to him on many occasions, but including

, i'm sure that somebody like john yates, john yates today, who resigned yesterday, the assistant commissioner, hadn't called those 11 bags of information, that had been collected, trash at the time. he called it also, i might add, a crap decision. his words, not mine. on not pursuing, not reopening the case back in 2009. and again under great public pressure, and media pressure, he resigned over the weekend. >> well we know you would never use that kind of language, glad they're his words, not yours, an historic day that rupert murdoch's aides hoped would never come. thanks so much. >>> as the scandal of news corp. grows, s&p 500 said it may cut the company's credit rating, citing business and reputation risks. the agency's warning comes as news corp.'s stock drops to a six-month low, for more on the fullout of rupert murdoch's media empire. we'll check on business with cnbc's steve sedgewick who is in london right now. >> nice to see you, cite incredible. s&p put the pressure on, as if there wasn't enough pressure on rupert murdoch. the moment they've got a triple b-plus rating,

yates has followed. >> we in the police service are truly accountable, those of us who take on the most difficult jobs clearly have to stand up and be counted when things go wrong. however, when we get things wrong, we say so, and we try and put them right. >> yates and stephenson will both be appearing before members of parliament later on but the focus will be firmly fixed on the murr docks and rebekah brooks. atika shubert joins us live from outside the houses in london on what to expect. let's have a look at the questions that mps will have for the three individuals. what are they going to ask, first off? >> basically there's two committee hearings here, one focusing on the police investigation and the other focusing on the phone hacking allegations, and that's where rupert murdoch is expected to be. he should be there at around 2:30, that's when they'll be grilled about how much did they know, when did they know it and why didn't they put a stop to it sooner or come forward with more information as to how widespread the scandal was. in addition to rupert murdoch being in the hot se
